I was cleaning out my attic last month and found a couple of
boxes full of extra 65-note rolls. I thought I'd bring them down
and peddle them.
As I brought down the last box I felt the sensation of something
crawling on me, then I felt the a sting, and then another. I quickly
came to realize there was a hornets nest in this box of rolls. I made
it outside and dumped the box on the ground and made some distance,
ripping off the jacket and shirt as I ran. After about an hour all
the hornets had vacated the box.
Most of the rolls were okay but about a dozen were chewed up 'way
beyond playable. The hornets had _recycled_ the paper from these rolls
to build their nests in some empty boxes that were also in the carton.
I first recovered all the good rolls. As I was repacking the rolls
I noticed that my goat, Loki, who was browsing about, had found the
pile of damaged rolls. I had the camera handy -- find out what Loki
thinks of Bartlett's "Polka De Concert":
Anyway, I have the survivors for sale, 67 rolls in all, without boxes
-- a wide range of music in fair to good condition, for $230.00 ($3.50
per roll). Price includes shipping in the US
Please have pity on a poor boy (me!) who risked life and limb to make
